. because of what we saw in the final quarter of the year 2012, the economy actually shrank as defense contractors -- or in part because defense contractors said you know he what? the axe is about to fall. get ready for this. we're going to pull back now. remember, we spend more than $900 billion a year on the defense department, on the pentagon, and so these contractors have a lot to say about the overall size of our economy. the president having seen that is going to say look. we have these cuts that we agreed to go into place, but the economy can't handle it right now, so let's kick the can a little bit and do some of these same kinds of cuts, and they call them cuts, but they're not really cuts. sometimes they're reductions to future increases, sometimes they're taking into account things like not fighting in the iraq war any more, and accounting gimmickry to get to the next thing, and then we'll fall off that cliff when we get to it. >> we understand the president is going to highlight some bad things that will happen if this doesn't get resolved, things like kids getting kicked o

enforcement in the 1970's, the men and women in the academy and then when they are out of the economy, the men and women are retrained on a monthly basis. they go to training. they go to the gun range. they are marksman. we have men and women that never pulled a service revolver. there has to be -- we do have gun-control in california. i do believe it does help, it really does help. i commend our senators and our president. newtown is a tragedy, a travesty. i have a granddaughter and there are young children who are our relatives. it does not make a difference. it could be young or old. we had a gentleman -- or rather a murderer from orange county, riverside county rather, the law enforcement gathered together. they were very emboldened and the economy in san diego. it tooks swap teams probably seven hours to get this man out. he had broken into a house and stole 30 guns, besides being a wanted murder. they did get him. i am proud of our men and women here in california. host: one more question. if the congress could do one thing, what would you like to see them do? caller: i would like to see
. two wars come to an economy in, traditional alliances fraying, are diplomatic standing damaged, and around the world people questioning america's commitments to core values and their ability to maintain our global leadership. that was my inbox on day one as your secretary of state. today conclave the world remains a dangerous and complicated place and of course we still face many difficult challenges. but a lot has changed in the last four years. under president obama's leadership we have ended the war in iraq, begun a transition in afghanistan and brought osama bin laden to justice. we have also revitalized american diplomacy and strengthen our alliances. and while our economic recovery is not yet complete, we are heading in the right direction. in short, america today is stronger at home and more respected in the world. and our global leadership is on firmer footing than many predicted. to understand what we have been trying to do these last four years, it's helpful to start with some history. last year i was honored to deliver the forest all lecture at the naval academy name
. it was probably a mistake. he wanted i am sure to show the appear ranges of activity while the economy has remained langwith for these years. we had a deep recession and sputtering and at that time the president wanted to show he cared. he created a blue ribbon commission. how come you are not meeting with them more. when will was the last time you met with them. why don't you talk to these people why don't you worry about jobs. at the closure it's embarrassing with such high unemployment, 23, 24 million people in the wrong situation just not the optics are bad. >> their mission was in the president's view an important one. a lot of people look at this as one, when president obama had a background he never ran a company and never worked for a company. he was a community organize he were and worked at a law firm. didn't work in business. so this was a way in which he would have outreach directly to the business community about their concerns and help guide his agenda toward creating more jobs. he barely met with them and now it's done, chris. is this not just an invitation for more criticis
reports, 157,000 jobs were added to the economy, but the way wall street sees it, it came in soft. wall street is looking at it at a more broader view, and they are looking at the momentum from november and december, and you are seeing a stronger trend continue, so that's good news obviously. but then again there has been an underlying optimism already in the market, and that's being fueled by the federal reserve. and that's buying up mortgage backed treasury and securities, and that's driving interest rates lower so the best game in town as far as investors see it to make money is here in the stock market, and it's driving investors to the stock market. and what moved the needle, it was the jobs number, and how the next milestone for the dow will be the all-time high, and first we will see if it can hold at 14000 at the close, and then we will see what happens. >> how much confidence do we have in this rally? >> some say not much, and others say stocks are making a comeback and the economy is doing that as well. one well known economist talks about this, and here is what he had to say.
have cooled. all of this with a troubled economy at home and calls for a lighter footprint abroad. i'm pleased to have tom donilon back at this table. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: we are now into a second term. what do we mean by lighter footprint? >> well, if we step back on that, at the beginning of 2012, the president after a multimonth review, close consultation with the uniformed military, the joint chief, service secretaries and combatant commanders around the world put together a new defense strategy. that defense strategy had to take into account that the budget control act required the defense budget over ot next ten years to be reduced by $500 million or so, a little less than that. and which would require a 5% decrease over what were the plans. and in doing that the president asked the military to think about what the new challenges were going to be. what were the real challenges we were going to face. and that defense strategy was comprehensive. and it had various pieces to it that we would look to agile forces, that we would look to having a global footprint.
agricultural livestock and irrigation water and source of the economy in my state. >> we almost wore the same thing today. i'm glad that didn't happen. you know i think that in speaking to both of you, one of the things, steven, is to talk about what us going on right now with your activism, what kind of, is there anything promising. we see these 53 senators. man, that seems like an uphill battle. >> the industry is trying to buy their way to this pipeline, without a doubt and, you know, putting a lot of money into it. you mentioned that letter signed by 53 senators who on average have taken 350% more oil money than their colleagues who haven't signed the letter and aren't urging the president to avert this environmental disaster. it's clear where the industry stands and what they're willing to do to get it. many are going to gather for the forward on climate rally. you can find out more information at the website. we're trying to fight the money with the money. that's what we're doing. >> the issue keeps coming up again and again and they keep urging the president to sign the permit and than

we have less of it. the might of our military, the size of our economy, the influence of our diplomacy, and the creative energy of our people remains unrifle. no, it is because as the world has changed, so, too, have the levers of power that can most effectively shape international affairs. i have come to think of it like this -- truman and acheson were building the parthenon with classical geometry unclear lines. the colors were a handful of big institutions and alliances dominated by major powers, and that structure delivered unprecedented peace and prosperity. but time takes a toll even on the greatest benefits -- edifice, and we do need a new architecture for a new world. more frank gehry than formal greek.
